Project description

The current proposal aims to study the cerebral organization underlying joint action in rhythmic interactions. Behavioral paradigms will be designed to extensively investigate coordination dynamics in healthy and clinical populations, and further integrated with electroencephalography (EEG) recordings. The end goal is to develop music-based biofeedback interactive scenarios grounded on this knowledge, to improve social skills and well-being in elderly patients.
